Yes, the land owner can sue you for the balance owed and procure a judgment upon which he/she can execute. Under Nevada law, unless you have homesteaded the manufactured home that judgment can result in a lien on it or any other property you own. My suggestion is for you to immediately file a homestead exemption for the mobile home and do what you can to protect it from the judgment. The landlord still can evict you for non-payment of the lot rent, though, and there is little hope of continuing to live there for free. You are in breach of your contract and it is only getting worse for you as you rely on the land owner not taking action to evict you.
